Honor 5C: Impressive Low-Cost Smartphone Presented by Huawei
Yes, the name 5C was first used by Apple, but affordable Honor 5C is certainly not a clone of not-so-cheap iPhone 5C. Huawei Honor 5C is the latest smartphone from the Huawei spin-off brand and it has been able to mesmerize the world since announced in April 2016. It is available in UK for just about $229 (converted), so it was not a lie when it was introduced as a budget smartphone. Unfortunately, customers in the US has to wait patiently since US release date has yet to be announced.
Honor 5C Design and Display
Huawei Honor 5C is available in grey, silver and gold, and the phone rocks a full-metal body clad in brushed aluminium. Huawei really hit the spot in the design department this time; we can all agree that Honor 5C is one slick-looking phone. The phone comes with 5.2 inch Full-HD IPS display and a resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels. The compact size actually makes the handset very easy and comfortable to hold.
Honor 5C Specification
Android 6.0 is the OS for Honor 5C, and under the hood lies an octa-core Kirin 650 running at 2GHz, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of onboard storage that can be further expanded with a microSD up to 128GB. The processor has been built using a 16nm process, meaning that the phone consumes less energy yet returns more performance. Hence, it is not too much if the manufacturer claims Huawei Honor 5C as a great gaming phone. We can finally expect to play games without stutters or slow loading times. Furthermore, the phone is powered by 3,000 mAh battery so our Honor 5C won’t die on us in the middle of the day.
Honor 5C Features
The square 13 megapixel primary camera of Honor 5C has an f/2.0 aperture, hybrid autofocus and intelligent color management. The rear camera clearly speaks that it will take great photos with reduced glare and blur. An 8 megapixel camera is placed as the selfie snapper on the front and it has another f/2.0 sensor. The cameras focus quite quickly, so photography is not a problem here. Furthermore, there is speakers mounted inside the box system for improved bass. NFC is present in the smartphone as well. However, Huawei Honor 5C has no fingerprint sensor and we will have to clean the screen quite frequently for it not to be covered in fingerprints.
